NOTES

  • you can use tinned/canned corn instead of fresh corn. i have used american sweet corn but even regular corn would taste good.
  • you could also use cream and cheese together in this recipe. even just adding cream would taste great.
  • if you want a baked version, then this is what you have to do. add about 5 tbsp cream towards the end of the recipe just before removing it from fire. take the mix in a bowl. top grated cheese on top and bake it in the oven for a couple of minutes till the cheese melts and browns. your baked cheese spinach corn is ready.
  • if there are any leftovers they could be used as a stuffing for pancakes and also can be used as a stuffing for grilled or toasted corn sandwich.

  1. This is really easy an quick, but above all…it’s so delicious!!!!!! I don’t even like spinach but this recipe made it taste awesome!! I used frozen spinach and corn. New family dish. About to make some more. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Awesome recipe. I halved it because a large bag of spinach is 273 grams. Next time I will use less red pepper flakes. I used frozen corn.
